Harvill March 4, 2014

Becky Ann Parsons Harvill died Tuesday at her LaQuinta, Calif., home after a four-month battle with pancreatic cancer. She was 68 and had formerly resided in Danville.

Born May 26, 1945, in Danville, she was a daughter of the late Adrian and Mary Parsons.

She attended Indiana University where she met and married Ken James, a U.S. Navy officer and doctor of optometry, and then moved to California, finishing up her senior year and graduating with a BA in English and British literature from California State University of San Diego. They had a daughter, Samantha Kay James, in 1972, and then divorced in ’75.

In 1974, she began a 33-year teaching career at Huntington Beach High School. There she met Herman Harvill, a fellow teacher, and they married in 1983.

The Harvills enjoyed antiquing, traveling and entertaining. She volunteered as a docent at the Palm Springs Art Museum and enjoyed working out at World Gym and cooking.

One of her greatest accomplishments was saving and restoring the mural The Ryme of the Ancient Mariner and having it placed at Huntington Beach High School.

In addition to her husband and daughter, survivors include siblings Patricia, Mark, Rex, William, Terri and Laurel Parsons; grandchildren Kyle, Faith and Kolby; and a host of friends.

Services are 11 a.m. March 13 at Mariners Church Chapel, 5001 Newport Coast Drive, Irvine, CA.

A celebration of life will be 2 p.m. March 13 at Danville Friends Church, 45 N. C.R. 200 E., for family and friends unable to attend the California service.

Memorials may be made to the Palm Springs Art Museum. P.O. Box 2310, Palm Springs, CA 92263 or online at psmuseum.org.
